This quiche-like casserole made up of layers of green chiles and cheese is a meal even the most novice cook can put together. Easy Chile Rellenos Casserole is a comfort food dinner or breakfast everyone will love!
Happy first day of fall! It certainly hasn’t felt like fall so far this week with temperatures in the upper 80’s, but it was a nice way to end summer. As you’re reading this I’m currently in Minneapolis on a blogging trip learning all about pigs and pork. I’ll be sharing all the details about what I learn in a future post along with a tasty pork recipe so keep an eye out for it. Today however, is all about a recipe that is so easy even the most novice cook can get it on the table, Easy Chile Rellenos Casserole!
This recipe comes from my aunt’s mom and I’m so happy I have it for those days when I have no interest in putting together a meal that requires any kind work. I thought I better share a recipe using green chiles before Hatch green chile season ends. You don’t have to have roasted green chiles to make this casserole, in fact the original recipe just calls for the canned variety. Of course if you can find some fresh roasted green chiles, I highly recommend using them!
I’m not gonna lie, this casserole isn’t the healthiest thing you’ll put in your mouth, but if you’re looking for some comfort food to cozy up with, it’s well worth the calories. The two major ingredients in this dish are the green chiles and lots of cheese! They’re layered together then a mixture of milk, eggs and flour is poured over the top to bind everything. More cheese and some green salsa go on top, then it’s baked until it’s bubbly and golden brown.
This Easy Green Chile Rellenos Casserole is similar to a quiche minus the crust. Not only does it make a great dinner, but you could also make it for breakfast or brunch. It only takes about 10-15 minutes at the most to put together, then bakes for about 40 minutes, a perfect meal when you’re short on time. Today I’m sharing the recipe over on Spoonful of Flavor. Head on over so you can make this easy peasy cheesy casserole tonight!
